# I think I have the code correct, but I can't get the app to acknowledge it...any ideas?

The code output looks correct in the preview pane and when I copy it out to a file and run it via the Python shell...not sure how to proceed?

even.py
```import random

start = 5

def even_odd(num):
# If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
# Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
return not num % 2

while start:
rand_num = random.randint(1,99)
if even_odd(rand_num):
print("{} is even.".format(rand_num))
else:
print("{} is odd.".format(rand_num))
start -= 1
```

The challenge is being very picky here. Your code is correct, it just doesn't like that you included periods at the end of your print statements. Remove them and you're good to go!

```import random

start = 5

def even_odd(num):
# If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
# Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
return not num % 2

while start:
rand_num = random.randint(1,99)
if even_odd(rand_num):
print("{} is even".format(rand_num))
else:
print("{} is odd".format(rand_num))
start -= 1
```

Thanks...seems a little silly, but reviewing the instructions, there were no periods included in the requested output...the Devil is in the details!
